You all laughed and threw things at me when I rented the sandwich board, grew my hair out and lamented the end of days, but now we’ll see who has the last maniacal laugh.
Facebook has obviously been planting these hipsters in t-shirts around the globe to make us think that Google was the real Skynet. Now we finally know the truth.
What was the one thing that was holding Facebook back from it’s final transformation into Skynet? Obviously it was Facebook’s inability to tap into the collective unconscious of humankind. It was the last thread that was keeping us from being enslaved and forced to spend eternity in indentured servitude on a farm in Farmville.
Today we’re introducing Facebook Questions, a beta product that lets you pose questions like these to the Facebook community. With this new application, you can get a broader set of answers and learn valuable information from people knowledgeable on a range of topics.
Facebook Questions helps you tap into the collective knowledge of the more than 500 million people on Facebook. For example, if you’re vacationing in Costa Rica and want to know the best places to surf, you can use Facebook Questions to get answers from nearby surfing enthusiasts. Because questions will also appear to your friends and their friends, you’ll receive answers that are more personalized to you.
Check and mate. Once Facebook definitively knows what my favorite shade of purple is we are all doomed. Doomed!
